Ben Cartwright and his three sons, Adam, Hoss, and Joe fought for what was just and decent in a time where lawlessness was common. The widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright had three sons, each by a different wife: the oldest was the urbane architect Adam Cartwright, who built the ranch house. The second was the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his...

A "Live" 1953 commercial for Kix Cereal. This is taken directly from an episode of "Ding Dong School", which can also be downloaded on the internet archive. The host of the show, who to an extent had creative control, insisted that only products that were beneficial to children could be advertised on the program. This is a long commercial, but there were only two commercials during the entire 30-minute broadcast. See complete broadcast here: Ding Dong School

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes "The Case of the Cunningham Heritage" Originally aired October 18, 1954. Holmes unravels the mystery surrounding the death of Mr. Cunningham, a gentleman whose fiancée was found by his body with a knife in her hand.

An old interview of Bruce Lee. The episode was filmed in 1971 and got losed, in 1994 they found it and aired the episode as a tv special under ''Bruce Lee: The Lost Interview''. All American pictures made before 1989 without a copyright renewel fell in the public domain,Because this interview was lost for so long it never gotten a copyright renewel. So it is automaticly public domain.

A Classic 1950's Commercial for Post's Sugar Crisps. Cheap, but cute. DISCLAIMER: This video does not represent the quality of major Hollywood cartoons of the time. Nor does it represent the quality of major Tele-cartoons of the time ("Clutch Cargo" didn't air until several years after this commercial, so it doesn't count. Then again, "Clutch Cargo" was already crap by the standards of it's time). Heck, it stinks by the standards of most advertising cartoons of the time....

Aired 1957, here's three commercials for the ill-fated Edsel car (1958 model year?), which despite some innovative features ended up being a major commercial failure. The car is considered a sought-after classic today. This was back when a 60-minute show often had less than 10 minutes of commercials, but the commercials were often all for the same company!

From the live tv anthology series Tales of Tomorrow. After a customer is overly eager to buy a crystal egg, an antique shop owner does the only logical thing: takes it to the chairman of Cambridge's physics department (played by Thomas Mitchell, Uncle Billy from It's a Wonderful Life), who discovers the egg's secret. From a story by H. G. Wells More info at the IMDB. Upload courtesy of Inventing Situations. Hopefully in the public domain.

A classic commercial for Du Mont Laboratories Television Sets. I took this from an episode of "School House" that somebody uploaded. Note: While the TV network can be spelt DuMont, the owner of the Network which produced TV sets is correctly spelt Du Mont, as that was the spelling perferred by the founder of the company.

Set in Nevada in the 1860's, Bonanza chronicled the adventures of the Cartwright family who owned a large ranch called The Ponderosa. Ben Cartwright and his three sons, Adam, Hoss, and Joe fought for what was just and decent in a time where lawlessness was common.

The second was the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his...

One of the few surviving episodes of "Queen for a Day", from 1960. One of the strangest shows ever to air on TV. Please note that most shows of the 60's were MUCH BETTER than this.

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes "The Case of the Texas Cowgirl" Originally aired November 8, 1954. Minnie O'Malley, a cowgirl in a travelling rodeo, seeks help from Sherlock Holmes--to remove a dead body from her hotel room! Strangely, Holmes seems to be more than happy to comply. Suspects range from a Blackfoot Indian, the owner of the rodeo Bison Jack, and a meek salesman across the hall. Easily the most ridiculous episode of the entire series.

Rare 1949 episode of the TV series "Captain Video and His Video Rangers". The show is about a "Space Captain" and his "Video Ranger" who must the galaxy from the evil Dr. Pauli. . The show was live, which would explain the missed cues. Most episodes are presumed lost. The series was never liked by TV critics, though proved popular with children. Later seasons had improved writing. However, as corny as the show was, it did prove influential on later series....

A classic Television commercial for a UNIVAC computer. This commercial is from a 5 February 1956 CBS-TV telecast. It also promotes CBS-TV's weather service. Pretty cool commercial if you ask me.

Classic Television broadcast with English subtitles at the beginning. I have re-uploaded this because it used to be here, but I couldn't find it. Uploaded specially for my friend, Matthew.
